Xbox Splash Screen Stuck for More Than a Minute

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?


Brief description of the issue:

When starting the game, the “splash screen” (the screen that appears on Xbox while a game is loading in, before the company logos) appears for exactly 89 seconds (1 minute 29 seconds), even before the Xbox Game Studios / Asobo / Blackshark logos appear on screen. This makes getting into the sim unbearably long, as it still takes 3-4 minutes to load from the title screen. Prior to Sim Update 9, the splash screen was visible only for around 8-10 seconds. Now it takes 10 times longer. 100% reproduceable every time. (Xbox Series X)
